Both sides in Libya’s ongoing conflict have agreed to nominate a committee to monitor a fresh ceasefire. But after nine years of conflict, many Libyans are skeptical.
Following weeks of negotiation, international leaders have approved an agreement that calls for a ceasefire and an end to foreign interference in the war in Libya. A fragile ceasefire has held since January.
The UN's deputy Libya envoy said the Libyan embargo has "become a joke." The German foreign minister has called for an EU mission to enforce the failing weapons ban.
EU foreign ministers have agreed on naval and air measures to to try and stop weapon flows to Libya. Critics say it's a toothless deal that will fail to stabilize the country riven by civil war.
The bloc has resolved to monitor a UN arms embargo, which is routinely flouted. The naval element had been a sticking point for some countries because of the possible incentive for migrants looking to reach Europe.
